My input into the thread is that it departs from the song BTW; fine, but to old deadheads who wore out the record grooves on Europe '72--collecting all the Europe 72's shows the evoution of Weir's LLR. At its inception Jerry played pedal steel and if any of you have the Copenhagen show (4-14-72) you hear the beauty and tenderness Jerry lends to the song; especially at the end.

It is by far IMO the truest reading of LLR. A close 2nd is 7-26-87 version in 2nd set following "Shakedown." Jerry's fills, in back of Weirs repetitive line, is awesome--sounding like rain getting more, and more intense as it fals: true poetry.

Have you heard the LLR from 7/18/76? Bob & Donna seem to really inhabit the characters of the song.... if only for a minute. And Jerry is great, as usual when he is free to just play....
